Handbook supporting the EUROCONTROL Specification for SWIM Service Description - Ed 1.0 (Edition date: 01/12/2017, Reference nr: EUROCONTROL-SPEC-168)

Role of the handbook

The Specification for SWIM Service Description sets out a number of requirements to be met by a service description. It provides some basic examples to illustrate the requirements. However, the specification does not give much detail on how to best implement the requirements.
